Bruce Lee retrospective unifies Chinatown dancers
It is rare to see so many Seattle lion dance groups perform simultaneously.
However, it happened at the Wing Luke’s Bruce Lee exhibit’s grand opening on Oct. 4. Multiple lion groups might show up, but usually one after the other.
The lion dance groups are notorious for rivalry in the community. In the name of the late Bruce Lee, the martial arts master cooperated that day. One black sheep tried to stir up an incident, but the others ignored him. One even went out of his way to shake the hands of his old rival.
Now, that’s historical! (end)
